You can look it up in your Strunk and Wagnalls

Not quite Rowan and Martin. The submitter’s wife uttered this nice word blend, which is a conflation of “Funk and Wagnalls” (dictionary/encyclopedia) and “Strunk and White” (American English writing style guide).  The Funk/Strunk rhyming is obviously the culprit here.  A big thanks to Martin Pietrucha for hearing this one and sending it in.

If you want to look up “malaphors”, purchase the malaphor book, “He Smokes Like a Fish and other Malaphors”, on Amazon.  Makes a great stocking stuffer (or fire starter).
